She came, she made us laugh and we love her.
Heidi Klum was the VIP guest at an opulent Australia Day Party at Bondi Icebergs yesterday to celebrate the launch of her own lingerie range through lingerie brand Bendon. (Yep, they’re the same people who brought out Elle’s range which appears to have been dropped for Ms Klum).
We were skeptical before we met her, but Heidi pried to be a lot of fun, a good sport, with a smoking body and as likeable as you can get.
Why we love Heidi:
1) Her voice: It’s no surprise the German girl has an international accent, given she has lived all over the world. Her voice is gentle yet strong with a subtle German accent underlying an American twang. She kisses everyone on the cheek twice too – oh so European and classy.
2) She’s a mum: She has four kids she references regularly. Anyone who has one child knows how challenging the balancing act is, but Heidi appears to do it with ease, and often mentions her children with warmth and a love only mothers can show.
3)That Body. Oh my. Her age was being questioned by many in the room, as she looks SO young. Who cares what the number is. To have THAT body after four children is astonishing. She is lean, fit, strong but not skinny, oh and she has a great cleavage in case you’ve missed the new promo shots for her lingerie.
4) Humour: She had Karl Stefanovic sweating up a storm on stage at Icebergs and had the crowd in stitches as he revealed he was wearing her brand of male underwear – and she pulled at his pants to show the label. When Nova’s Wippa turned up with a gift – a bottle opener topped with kangaroo balls, she laughed it off like a pro. Love That.
5) She’s real: Everyone in that room wanted a photo with Heidi Klum, and she posed, she chatted, she laughed and she hung out with all of us like we were old pals. Thanks Heidi – come back soon.
